We have just started a new 'closed' Facebook group where people we can talk openly about stammering, and start their own discussions.
We have launched 'The British Stammering Association Facebook group' in response to requests from BSA members for a place to talk about stammering in a safe environment (and as a result of our existing Facebook page not being great at facilitating interaction between members). It is a 'closed' group, meaning that your posts there aren't seen by your Facebook friends.
It took off straight away, with many making posts to introduce themselves, tell the other members what helps them the most with their stammers, and starting their own discussions. One member commented, "It's so nice to finally speak, as I wouldn't do so in the open page," and another wrote, "I've finally found a private group where I can talk about my stammer."
If you'd like to join and be a part of this new online community, go to www.facebook.com/groups/stammeringbsa.
We also still have the open BSA Facebook page at www.facebook.com/stammeringbsa
